Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Mary Forbes'

 Hibiscus rosa-sinensis Mary Forbes'
This photo and the one below were added on June 12 /2013 to note that winter flower colour and form is slightly different to the original posted at the bottom.
Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Mary Forbes'

 This Hibiscus has both ruffled petal edges and extra ruffled petaloids in the centre of the bloom. From a distance the flower appears as a vibrant burnt orange but up close it reveals a hot pink centre with contrasting paler rays.
Growing to average height of about 1.5 metres this is a stunning variety.
I am unsure of its origin.
